They don’t call themselves communists, but they might as well — the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) revere past American communists, adhere to communist doctrine, and use the venerable jargon of communism.
The video below features excerpts from a talk given by DSA head Maria Svart at a global meeting of Marxists held in April of this year at the EU Parliament building in Brussels. Ms. Svart is quite candid about her organization’s plan for infiltrating, co-opting, and assuming control of American political institutions. And she’s proud of how much success they’ve had in recent years, helping numerous candidates get elected to local, state, and federal government positions. Mind you, they ran for office as candidates for the Democrat Party, the same way Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez did (and do).
One of the DSA’s proudest moments was its success in deterring Amazon from establishing its headquarters in New York City.
